Projected lineups for Canucks, Blackhawks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Here are the lineups the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks likely will use when they renew one of the NHL's best rivalries Friday at Rogers Arena:

CANUCKS

Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Zack Kassian

Chris Higgins - Alexandre Burrows - Jannik Hansen

Mason Raymond - Jordan Schroeder - Dale Weise

Manny Malhotra - Maxim Lapierre - Aaron Volpatti

Dan Hamhuis - Alexander Edler

Jason Garrison - Kevin Bieksa

Keith Ballard - Christopher Tanev

Roberto Luongo

Cory Schneider

Scratched: Andrew Ebbett, Andrew Alberts, Cam Barker

Injured: Ryan Kesler, David Booth

Weise missed practice Thursday with a stiff neck but said he felt good enough to play after taking part in the morning skate.

BLACKHAWKS

Brandon Saad - Jonathan Toews - Marian Hossa

Patrick Sharp - Dave Bolland - Patrick Kane

Bryan Bickell - Andrew Shaw - Viktor Stalberg

Brandon Bollig - Marcus Kruger - Michael Frolik

Duncan Keith - Brent Seabrook

Niklas Hjalmarsson - Johnny Oduya

Sheldon Brookbank - Nick Leddy

Corey Crawford

Ray Emery

Scratched: Jamal Mayers

Injured: Michal Rozsival, Daniel Carcillo

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said backup goaltender Ray Emery will start Saturday in Calgary for just the second time this season. Quenneville wouldn't confirm whether Bollig or Mayers would play on the fourth line Friday, but Mayers stayed out for a hard skate long after his teammates left in the morning, as did Rozsival, who is close to coming back from a knee injury.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
